Fenton Friday: Pepper Premiere
Pictured here is an 'Orange Zinger' tomato and a Sweet-hot pepper trying to ripen. I have had some 'Sungold' and orange currant tomatoes already this week, but only a few. I think I need to apply some fish fertilizer to get these plants moving more into high gear. I planted three other hot peppers together in a self-watering pot at the edge of the plot as an experiment to see if they will do any better than this sad one in the ground.
The bean and mini-muskmelon seedlings are doing very well and I started some 'Marketmore' cucumber seeds, which ripen in 60 days according to the seed pack. That is fine by me, since I'll be traveling and busy in August, so September harvest will be good timing.
How is your garden plot growing this week?
